How do I recognize antique wedding bands?
If you are new to jewelry and what we mean by “antique,” let us explain. Antique wedding bands for women have easily identifiable elements that make them easy to distinguish between other styles of jewelry. The most commonly seen design is milgrain detail. Milgrain looks like rows of tiny spherical beads and they are found around the edges of antique wedding band sets. Milgrain adds another level of texture to the design in contrast to the traditionally smooth surface of the metal. Before modern casting techniques were developed, milgrain was hand carved into the antique gold wedding bands.
Another common element in antique looking wedding bands is filigree detail. Filigree is the curling organic leaf and floral like patterns engraved or designed around jewelry. The pattern looks very similar to paisley on platinum antique wedding bands.
Finally Art Nouveau and Art Deco elements are commonly found in antique white gold wedding sets. Art Nouveau design was popular from about 1890 to 1910 and was influenced by floral motifs with natural forms and patterns. Typical Art Nouveau antique white gold wedding bands featured filigree patterns with flowers, insects or animas.
Art Deco was the next popular movement and was prominent from about 1910 to 1940. This style focused on colorful geometric forms with exotics motifs and high quality craftsmanship. Art Deco antique wedding band designs featured bright gems around symmetrical geometrical patterns.
